During Thanksgiving break, we do not collect student laptops, but ask you to follow our guidelines that the laptops should not travel out of state without prior permission. Also, we have a school policy that homework is not given over vacations, so that families can have more time together.

Throughout the year, we have scheduled school vacations and have created a school calendar that tries very hard to meet your family's needs for travel during vacations. Please try to schedule all of your family trips during our scheduled vacations. If this is not possible, please be sure to follow our Planned Family Absence protocol.
